3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, molasses, caramel, dark fruits, and roasted malt. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights. It has a one finger khaki head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some spotty webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate, light caramel, and a touch of molasses. There are some faint dark fruits in the background. The finish has light-moderate roasted malt. After it warms, the flavor changes from more sweet to more roasty with some faint burnt notes. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with some reddish edges when held to light. Light brown head starts at 1 finger deep then fades to a light cap and gentle lace. Aroma is huge; rich dark roasted malts, nuts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, earthy hops. Taste is accurately reflected by aroma, basically the same. Body is medium-heavy, creamy, low carbonation, satisfying balanced bittersweet finish. Overall, a huge amount of flavor for a 5.5%abv brew. Before checking the abv, I would have put this one around 7.5% based on aroma, body and flavor. This will be a new go-to porter for me.
